to annapolis. >> we have a look at the early hour there. >> we can tell you it is raining hard here in annapolis, maryland and it has been for several hours. some of the businesses have already heeded the warnings. this is buddy's crack house. if you looked inside the window they put all of their outside furniture inside. many warnings were given out in annapolis. the mayor advising people to leave the area. here are some of the problems we are already seeing. not even here yet. the chesapeake has not jumped its banks. you see more businesses across the street. not only putting down the sand bags. trying to prevent any glass from shattering. we have seen a lot of tape on the glass. they had irene hurricane isabel in 2003. anytime there is a big storm coming through this area, you check right here. to give you an idea of what businesses have done, you see that they have taken off the glass. not a mandatory evacuation. they are calling on merchants to move from the area today. you have the bay bridge. many of the anne arundel county officials are advising people to stay off the stree

in later on tonight. right now 45 miles an hour in baltimore, 49 miles an hour in annapolis, 53 miles per hour in winchester and 54 in leesburg. so those winds are very strong and gusty already. 54 miles per hour in pax river. we expect the winds to end up somewhere in the 60, maybe even 70-mile an hour range for peak wind gusts heading into the overnight hours. when you have the winds, you have the waves. that's why we have 16-foot waves off the coast of virginia beach, 18-foot waves about parallel to the ocean city coastline and up towards rehoboth and lewis and you can see some other wind gusts here. 53 miles an hour is the peak wind gust being reported at dover air force base. >> the waves down a little bit. i guess that westerly wind is doing its thing now, but still -- >> 67 miles an hour. >> just off the coast of rehoboth about 15 miles or so. temperatures, we're in the 40s to around 50. look at oakland 32. you jump the divide it's a whole other world. 49 in fredericksburg with 46 in manassas and gaithersburg. i'm not going to show you a wind chill map. massive amounts of moisture
. >> we want to go to barry, who joins us live from annapolis. >> there is also the concern here about flooding. there has been minor flooding with a few road closures and a tree that hit a house. we were talking about that just a little while ago. that happened on maple road west. emergency crews went there and there was a family inside, but everyone was able to get out safely. that is what was happening in that location. of course, that was over by the airport. there are some street closures that we need to tell you about. the first is that the prince george's county, anne arundel county line. minor role of closures include road, the herald harper area of crown seville, and the male avenue, those have been closed because of minor flooding. there is a shelter in annapolis at the annapolis high school. we checked on that earlier and were told 20 people went there, people that live in low-lying areas and decided to get to higher ground. the place is friendly to pets and is able to handle at least 1500 people. so, any others who need to get there can. they also have a phone number that y
doppler. really heavy rain has developed along the east bay. look at baltimore and annapolis towards dunkirk, a good half- inch of rain per hour. the flooding has been a huge concern for us so far. look at the rainfall totals from the past 24 hours. annapolis, pushing 6 inches now. just over 4 inches at reagan national. 5.5 at dulles. about 3 inches in gaithersburg. just over 2 inches in fredericksburg. flood watches and warnings remain in effect across pretty much the entire viewing area. the wind is something we will have to deal with mostly this morning. we have seen cuts in the range of 25 or 30 miles an hour. a gust of 26 miles an hour just reported recently at reagan national. the high wind warning has been dropped and replaced by wind advisory until 2:00 today. occasional gusts of 40 m.p.h. can be expected. sustained winds of 15 to 25. your expense forecast, cloudy skies, wind with showers, 44 degrees at 9:00, at noon, much the same with very little change in temperatures. drying up by 5:00, still breezy, 49 degrees. -- your express forecast. we will show you the peak wind gus
is in annapolis. how are things looking this morning? >> it is a lot better today. things have really eased up. we have a steady rain falling. nothing like we were seeing like yesterday. i spoke to the emergency management folks. crews have been out since about midnight, looking for any kind of damage. there will be an update around 6:00 a.m. we saw some localized flooding and some standing water on the roadways. it still continues to rain here. the shelter is still open. 50 people and pets are there. and the call center is still open if you need to call for assistance. they can give you transportation to the shelter. high tide is expected around 5:45 this morning. they are watching the high tide this morning. it will's any flooding, happen between 5:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. this morning. kim dacey, wbal-tv 11 news. tim tooten is in baltimore city. >> i haven't gotten closer to the jones falls. there we go. the water has subsided some. the water was up to about my knees in terms of the level of water. you can hear the rage of the jones falls. this is a measuring stick of sorts. the rain continues her
, bowie, annapolis, down into southern maryland, calvert county getting some very heavy rain and this will continue to spread across the area. so north and west, leesburg, out towards front royal and frederick, you too will see this heavy rain as that whole surge, that whole big storm we've been talking about for days and days continues to push unfortunately right in our direction. it looks like it will past just to our north and east during the overnight hours. here is the latest with sandy. maximum winds have increased since you went to bed last night. now, 58 miles per hour. that is a big change and that pressure continues to fall. 946millibars. this storm is very intense for this late in the season and for its current latitude. this is -- we're in new grounds here as far as the track and as far as intensity. moving right off to the north at 15. that is the other big change. during the day yesterday, it was pushing off to the north and east and now we're starting to see that recurvature. our computer model has suggested this will curve to the north and west and eventually
annapolis and the bay bridge. we do have wind restricts that have been posted. so wind restricts for those out on 50. because of flooding, there is a portion of 50 already shut down between gulf coast road and philadelphia road but as of now. 90 remains open. >>> we continue to track hurricane sandy this morning as wild weather begins to pound the coast. >> lauren demarco is live in ocean city this morning with the latest. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. definitely feeling those bands that tucker was talking about so the rains starting to pick up more. as i was waiting for the live shot, it was a lot lighter. now getting heavier. the wind picking up. we have seen a little bit of of that sea foam coming across the seawall and i did see a wave crash over it here near 16th street. police still patrolling the boardwalk. they are will continue to do that until the sustained winds reach 50 miles per hour if they do get that high. we are seeing wind gusts up to 47 miles per hour. earlier, we headed over to the pier and pier still standing. there were some rumors that it had collap
the storm blew through the capital of maryland yesterday afternoon as well. several stores in annapolis taped up their windows. you see the sandbags piled up there but the harbor did not flood. the surge of the water was actually pushed away from annapolis which tucker said would happen. even when high tide hit around 6:00, the docks were still not under water. they prepared. >> it is called a blowout. the winds pushed the water away. now, we're concerned today because the winds have shifted out of the south and we'll have a a couple of high tides today and the moon was full yesterday and with a good southerly breeze today, we could have flooding issues in annapolis, oldtown alexandria. the story changes a little bit but we still have some issues we have to deal with. >> don't take away the sandbags. >> right. if you are down there in downtown annapolis, you want to keep the sand bagged for another 4 hours or so until the winds start to fall off. >> good advice. what is else is going on? >> still raining. we are not done with the rain yet. some pretty good rain totals so far. in fact, m
